2011 Canada 50-cent Winnipeg Jets in Card

Celebrate the Jets' triumphant return to Winnipeg

The announcement came in May 2011; the Winnipeg Jets will return to the NHL in the 2011-2012 Season. Triumphant fans filled the streets in celebration. Even though 15 years have passed since Winnipeg's last NHL team; the bond between the city and its cherished Jets remains as strong as ever.

The Winnipeg Jets were born as part of the World Hockey Association (WHA); a professional league founded in 1972 to advance the game by establishing teams in markets previously overlooked by the NHL which had dominated the sport since 1917.

The WHA was short-lived. By 1979, the majority of its teams had been dissolved; but its most successful, the Winnipeg Jets, moved to the NHL where it continued to play until 1996. Now, enthusiastic fans are eagerly waiting for Winnipeg's hockey renaissance to take off.

Updating the team's logo to authenticate its name for the 21st century is an important part of that revival. The military jet that has been a visual element of the logo since 1972 has been brought to the forefront to highlight Canada's rich aviation heritage; its time-honoured character evident in the logo's strong, graphic lines. Shades of military blue and silver are enhanced with a touch of maple leaf read-a telltale sign this team will soar on the wings of true hockey passion.
